What Is A Facelift

A Procedure That Restores Your Face To It's More Youthful Appearance

Facelifts are cosmetic surgeries that are done on the face. They can be used to improve the appearance of various parts of the face, such as the cheeks, hairline, jawline, neck and lips. This surgery is often performed on people who have lost volume in their face due to aging or weight loss. A facelift can help eliminate wrinkles and lines from your skin, giving you a more refreshed look!


Although most often done on individuals in their sixties, some patients elect to have face lifts in Utah in their fifties. Even people in their forties sometimes receive this type of cosmetic surgery in order to deal with the signs of aging.

The Mommy

Makeover in Utah

A Series of Operations to Restore Your Body...

Motherhood is one of the greatest experiences this life has to offer. Your body has earned the “Badges of Motherhood”: sagging and deflated breasts, a little extra bulge here and there, stretch marks, a loose tummy, and a six-pack nowhere in sight. Although wonderful, motherhood does take a toll on your body. Sometimes the crunches and sit-ups won’t help restore it to the body you used to know. However there is a way to help Get That Body Back… it is called “The Mommy Makeover.”

This popular term refers to the rejuvenation of a woman’s body after childbearing. Maintaining your current figure can be challenging with pregnancy, weight gain and breastfeeding but it doesn't have stop there! You may experience stretch marks on skin that's now more exposed than before. Perhaps you have uneven pigmentation patches caused by hormones during this time period too. Learn how our medical professionals make sure their patients get back into shape post-childbirth through a series of procedures.

About

The Facelift Surgery

In this day of health and fitness, people want to look as good as they feel. A good diet and exercise help to keep the body rejuvenated; however, this does not always help the face to do the same. A well-performed procedure known as the “facelift” or “facial Rejuvenation” surgery may be the most predictable way of restoring the appearance of the face, using advanced surgical techniques. The facelift is a popular cosmetic procedure that provides a long-lasting, youthful, and more natural-looking appearance… and… you can still look like yourself.


While advertised facelifts that have catchy names may have some initial impressive results, these results may not last. It is recommended that one considering a facelift should research the facelift options. Many of the “catchy name” facelifts are nothing more than "mini lifts" which are similar to the earliest facelifts performed decades ago. Often the results are disappointing, requiring a "touch-up" within a relatively short period of time. Since the techniques for facial rejuvenation have advanced so that results can last without looking like you’ve had a facelift, doesn't it make sense to go for optimal results and enhance your appearance with state of the art procedures?

Facelift vs

Facial Resurfacing Procedures

Facelift surgery is different from facial resurfacing procedures such as dermabrasion, laser, and chemical peels. Facial resurfacing refers to superficial changes in the skin with limited tightening of the skin. This can be beneficial in many cases, particularly for those who desire improvement of their "fine wrinkles". Just the same, one cannot expect the same results attained with facial rejuvenation surgery. The well-performed facelift achieves a more youthful appearance and provides higher satisfaction.

Candidates

For Facelift Surgery

The typical candidates for Facelift Surgery include women and men who are becoming more aware of their aging appearance.

Other Factors Include:

  • Disappointment with Noninvasive Procedures such as Chemical Peels & Lasers
  • Good Physical Health


  • Non-Smoker


  • Positive Outlook


  • Realistic Expectations

Facelift Surgery

Procedure Break Down

Incisions are placed to produce optimal results. The telltale signs of a facelift include a shortening or even loss of sideburns, hair loss causing a "white wall" appearance, obvious scars, stitch or staple marks behind the ears, tethered earlobes, and often a short or absent tragus (trapdoor over the ear canal). The facelift offered at Fairbanks Plastic Surgery decreases the visibility of the scars and these telltale signs. The small incision under the chin allows for additional tightening of the neck muscles. The facelift with the most impressive results can be considered a double-lift, in that the deeper tissues are raised followed by the lifting of the skin.


At the end of the procedure a protective dressing is placed, which helps reduce swelling and bruising; this dressing is changed the next day. The care in this technique minimizes bruising and swelling, allowing patients to go out in public within 12-14 days.

Facelift

Recovery Process

Recovery Downtime:

For most individuals, facelift recovery is better than anticipated. Most require less pain medication compared to other cosmetic procedures. Some feel that they can be more active after surgery as a result. However, rest and relaxation are strongly recommended so that the individual may heal well with less bruising and swelling. The facelift patient notices improvement each day as the swelling goes down. Dressing changes are done within the first week after surgery. Typically the patient can shower within 3 days of the procedure. Instructions are given to help understand how to care for the incision sites and activity limitations. By six weeks the patient is able to resume all activities to include aggressive exercise.

Facelift Results

What You DON'T Want

What to Avoid in Facelift Surgery:

  • A tight, windblown look is usually the giveaway that a person has had a facelift, even years later.
  • Tethered earlobes & the shortening or loss of the tragus (the trap door over the ear canal) are undesirable deformities.
  • A shortened or absent sideburn, giving a "white wall" look, is a giveaway for the average facelift.
  • The quickie procedure often results in lesser improvement over a shorter period of time.

Facelift Results

What You DO Want

What to Expect

Results will vary with each patient. The facelift can help with a positive outlook on life. A lifestyle that is active and healthy will help to better maintain this younger looking appearance. A proper diet and regular exercise will increase quality of life by decreasing unwanted weight gain, which can be seen in the face. The facelift performed at Fairbanks Plastic Surgery often has results that keep a person looking younger for more than 10 years after the facelift. As compared to their photographs before the surgery, some patients feel that their appearance reversed 15 or even 20 years.

Things To Consider

Before Booking Your Utah Facelift

There are many reasons why you should get a facelift in Utah. One of the best reasons is to combat aging. As we age, our skin loses elasticity and volume which can lead to wrinkles and lines on the face. A cosmetic surgery like this one will help eliminate these lines by pulling up sagging skin around your neck or jawline, for example. Other benefits include giving you a more youthful appearance that will boost your self-confidence!


Another reason people have facelifts is to repair previous damage done from accidents or injury. If someone has an accident where they break their cheekbone, for example, then it might be necessary to do reconstructive surgery or receive facial reconstruction after the fact with a plastic surgeon who specializes in the face. These procedures usually require a doctor to pull up stretched skin and move it back in place with stitches to help your face look more appealing again. If you have been injured, this is a great way to repair any damage you might have done through surgery or something else!


The facelift procedure is generally performed under local anesthesia, but in some cases general anesthesia might be recommended. The entire procedure can take up to five hours depending on the extent of work that needs to be done, and the patient will need another two weeks off work in order to recover fully.


If you are considering having a facelift in Utah, it is important to be aware of all possible risks. For example, there is always the possibility that the patient's skin will not heal properly after surgery due to an underlying skin condition which has gone undetected until now. There is also the risk that the patient might develop blood clots, which can result in permanent disability or even death.

Who Is The Mommy Makeover For

A Mommy Makeover is a multi-procedure process that addresses the concerns of women who are expecting or have given birth. The classic list of procedures include one that address the abdomen, breasts and buttocks in order correct any imbalances from months spent carrying children!


Breast rejuvenation may include a simple breast lift (mastopexy) for those women happy with their size but unhappy with the shaping of it. By tightening skin and repositioning tissue, we're able to return you back into someone who has youthful looking breasts again while also bringing up your nipple so that they are more forward-facing than before!


Breasts are an important part of a woman's body and breastfeeding can have some interesting side effects. Breastfeeding can cause the size and shape of your breasts to change. In some cases, they shrink back while other women have them stay large after breastfeeding.


The result of a tummy tuck procedure can be dramatic, whether it's for loose skin or fat that has accumulated due to pregnancy. The abdomen is typically treated in this manner because abdominal muscles have been pulled apart by childbirth and weight gain over time.


Lastly, some woman may also opt for liposuction to address areas of their body that aren't responding well to exercise, such as the thighs or flanks.
